1 The effect of WAY 405 ((R)-N-(2-methyl-(4-indolyl-1-piperazinyl)ethyl)-N-(2-pyridinyl) cyclohexane carboxamide), a putative 5-HT(1A) receptor antagonist, on cardiovascular function was studied. 2 In anaesthetized rats, the i.v. injection of WAY 405 did not significantly modify basal heart rate nor blood pressure at doses of 1, 3, 10 and 30 microg kg(-1);(More)
RMELanc-induced relaxation in aortic rings precontracted with NE, 5-HT and KCl. It also reduced NE-induced transient contraction in Ca(2+)-free solution and inhibited contraction induced by increasing external calcium. Nevertheless, the vasorelaxant effect of RMELanc was not reduced by ODQ, 1-alprenolol, TEA, glibenclamide, and 2-AP. Oral administration of(More)
The renal renin angiotensin system modulates blood pressure via the action of angiotensin II at type 1 (AT1) and type 2 (AT2) angiotensin receptors. It has been proposed that there is an increased pressor response to angiotensin II (ANG II) in the hypertensive rat kidney. We determined the role of the AT1 receptor in L-NAME-induced hypertension. Male Wistar(More)
We investigated the effect of inter-renal aortic coarctation on the function and expression of vascular α(1A)- and α(1D)-adrenoceptors and plasma angiotensin II (ATII) in rats. Male Wistar rats, either sham operated (SO), or with aortic coarctation for 7 (AC7) and 14 days (AC14) were used for agonist-induced pressor responses in vehicle (physiological(More)
BACKGROUND A body mass index (BMI) ≥30 kg/m(2) and a waist circumference (WC) ≥80 cm in women (WCF) or ≥90 cm in men (WCM) are reference cardiometabolic risk markers (CMM) for Mexicans adults. However, their reliability to predict other CMM (index tests) in young Mexicans has not been studied in depth. METHODS A cross-sectional descriptive study(More)
BACKGROUND Stimulation of central 5-hydroxytryptamine-1A (5-HT(1A)) receptors produces hypotension and bradycardia. We describe BMY 7378 (8-[2-[4-(2-methoxyphenyl)-1-piperazinyl]ethyl]-8-azaspiro[4.5]decane-7,9 dione) effects in cardiovascular function and [(3)H] 8-OH-DPAT (8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propyl-amino) tetralin) binding sites in rat brain of different(More)
1. The effect of WAY100635 (N-[2-[4-(2-methoxyphenyl)-1-piperazinyl]ethyl]-N-(2-pyridinyl) cyclohexanecarboxamide trihydrochloride), a 5-HT1A receptor antagonist, on cardiovascular function was studied. 2. The i.v. injection of WAY100635 dose-dependently decreased blood pressure in anaesthetized rats; while in pithed rats WAY100635 (1 mg kg(-1)) displaced(More)
1 We have characterized the alpha(1)-adrenoceptor subtypes present in isolated aorta of the alpha(1D)-adrenoceptor knockout (KO) mice, by chloroethylclonidine (CEC)-induced alkylation and their protection by selective alpha(1)-adrenoceptor antagonists. 2 The alpha(1D)-adrenoceptor is involved in the contractile response to noradrenaline in wild type (WT)(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the possible mechanism of the vasorelaxant action of methanol extract from Laelia autumnalis (MELa) in isolated rat aortic rings, and to establish its antihypertensive activity in vivo. MELa (0.15-->50 microg/mL) induced relaxation in aortic rings pre-contracted with KCl (80 mM), showing an IC50 value of(More)
1 The pressor action of the alpha1A-adrenoceptor agonist, A61603 (N-[5-(4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-2-yl)-2-hydroxy-5,6,7,8-tetrahydronaphthalen-1-yl] methanesulfonamide) or the alpha1-adrenoceptor agonist phenylephrine, and their blockade by selective alpha1-adrenoceptor antagonists in the mouse isolated mesenteric vascular bed were evaluated. 2 A61603 showed(More)
